Gem Precision Beauty can be found in a crisp bright salon centrally located on Rose Street in the heart of Edinburgh.
Gemma is a beautician and cosmetic tattoo artist specialising in brows and lashes. Gemma has been in the beauty industry for over ten years and is fully licenced and insured.
Gemma specialises in microblading, a semi-permanent makeup technique that can correct or fully reconstruct eyebrows. For more information see below. She also undertakes a range of work on lashes, whether classic lashes, volume lashes or hybrid lashes. Again, there is more information given below.
Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup technique that can correct or fully reconstruct eyebrows. Pigment is implanted beneath the skin surface by means of a small, sterile, disposable needle to produce the appearance of fuller eyebrows or to enhance the natural features of the face.
Microblading is considered semi permanent, as it will need to be refreshed every 12 to 18 months to prevent fading. Without refreshing, the pigment will fade over time and typically last between one and three years, depending on skin type, metabolic rate, pigment, sun exposure and other factors.
A consultation and patch test is necessary before a microblading procedure can be scheduled.
Gemma will fully detail your aftercare during your appointment and provide you with the products to heal your brows successfully. The aftercare includes washing the brows and applying a thin layer of healing ointment/oil in order to keep the brows nourished.
You must avoid facials and microdermabrasion for four weeks after treatment. Avoid hot, sweaty exercise for one week, as sweat contains salt, this is how we remove permanent makeup! Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for four weeks after treatment.
You have a choice of three styles of lashes:
All Lash extensions can be styled and customised to make the lashes look perfect for you.
Microblading appointments require a £50 booking fee to secure the appointment. The remainder is payable on the day of the appointment.
Last minute reschedule (less than 48 hour notice) of either the initial session, or subsequent top ups will require a a further £50 fee to book in again and last minute cancellations (less than 48 hour notice) will forfeit the booking fee.
